|I have always loved thinking that one or more of my ancestors lived through interesting periods in time such as coming to the New Americas or living through the American Civil War. Men and women that had lives and that those lives could be just as hard as they are today, much harder in some cases.|
I am 14 years old and I love romance. So that fact pushes me to wonder the circumstances of each life. Did they love each other? Where they pushed into marriage? Maybe their marriage caused a great scandal or maybe it was a very ordinary, expected occurance.
The sad thing is that the only way to find out those things are from diarys and there is only the original copy unless it was found and copyed or if it's passed down through future generations. So I may never know the things I wish to know but with the hard facts and dates and names I can make up my own stories about them.
